It’s not too late…in fact, we’ve only just begun! Three important notes we’d like you to remember…
- First, it’s not too late to join our team! When our community took over an abortion clinic in 2014, it was just the beginning of carrying out a long-term vision…and we’d like to invite you to become a part of that vision. As a New Life Center subscriber, you’ve already taken the beginning step to becoming more involved.
- Second, the New Life Center will begin rolling out a two-year plan for 2018 – 2020 for pro-life action in the defense of the human person and the common good. Together we can assist others in encountering Jesus, Healer of Wounds and Source of Mercy, by our collaboration and local action. Last week, the U.S. Senate failed to defund Planned Parenthood. Worldwide headlines captured the story of a UK hospital trumping parental rights in the case of Charlie Gard. The news headlines may sound like a big blow to the pro-life movement, but these defeats and our visceral fear of government should not, however, lead us to forgot that we are missionaries of God’s mercy.
- Finally, you’re invited to consider signing up for the John Paul II Healing the Whole Person retreat that will be held September 14 – 16, 2017 in Lansing. If we’re honest, we must pray and reflect on our own wounds and the ways that we have failed to prevent the woundedness of others. (Click on the file below for registration information).
Rachel’s Vineyard for those who’ve undergone traumatic loss
Rachel’s Vineyard Weekends are for healing from traumatic loss, including child loss through abortion, miscarriage and accidental death, divorce and even the loss of a relationship through psychological and emotional hurt.
A young man attended our February retreat because he needed to grieve the loss of his best friend who had committed suicide. A woman came on retreat because her father had disowned her at the age of three!
